Bob Iger and John Lasseter to kick off Disney’s D23 Expo with huge presentation


When Disney’s D23 Expo kicks off this August, it will do it in a huge way. Disney CEO Bob Iger will open the Expo immediately followed by a special presentation hosted by Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter. The kick off will set the stage for all the future film and animation projects coming to Disney in the coming year. If that wasn’t enough, the next day fans will be treated to a special screening of all the live action projects by Disney Studios.



Bob Iger will be adressing fans at the 2013 D23 Expo in August as it opens, followed immediately by a presentation of Disney Animated features from not only Walt Disney Animation but also Pixar.
